It’s been a busy few months with grad school and introducing new things to the shop. I’m almost to my next goal of 100 items and have made great headway in the Etsy world. Recently, I’ve started an Etsy team with a few fellow shops. TEMPT Team is growing strong and focuses on promotion and […]
Nobody really talks about this crap. Is it a secret? Is it the lost Grail? Does everyone else just have this figured out and I’m so far behind it’s ludicrous? Maybe. Don’t answer that last one. But for anyone else dying to know, here’s my experience – we can learn together. My shop is still young, […]
I’m still getting the hang of making an Etsy Treasury, but am absolutely loving the learning process. My Ingenuity Team always has a lot of amazing items and I’ve complimented them with a few others that have caught my eye and heart.

I am part of an Etsy forum on Ravelry, so I was poking around and looking at everyone’s shops. I landed on Linen Spirit and was immediately hooked. I’ve been thinking about linen yarn for a while. I started the Monge pattern not too long ago, but didn’t want to shell out the money for […]
I finally started to add a few pieces to the Etsy shop I wanted to create YEARS ago. Some you’ve seen and some are brand new! Here is a taste of what’s in at ZyloHandmade.
As I previously mentioned, I’ve been out of the loop in a serious way this year. Case in point, I wanted to start seeing what my favorite craft bloggers were up to and found out that about 30% of the blogs on my favorites lists were no more. Or they moved without a forwarding address. […]
